This newer collection from Swiss Traser H3 is their first aviator watch collection that I am aware of. it is also the only aviator style watch that I am familiar with that utilizes tritium gas tubes. Traser is actually part of MB Microtec, which is the only firm in the world that makes the small illuminating gas tubes and on Traser watches they call it "Trigalight." There are three watches in the collection and they are each meant as an homage to the three most famous German Bücker planes of the pre WWII era. Each watch is named for the plane it is in honor of. While not needing to couple with a classic plane, it is a common thing to do with aviator watches, and such "couplings" are common with most any type of watch for that matter. Bücker started in the 1930s and made a series of very agile and study planes use for a variety of purposes including stunt flying and pilot training. See the plane below the watch it is meant to represent. Each of the watches comes in a 46mm wide stainless steel case with a uni-directional navigational bezel that can be used to determine the compass direction based on the locations of the sun. See the little chart. The watches have a large domed sapphire crystal (actually domed on the automatic model, and I think flat on the other models) with a layer of AR coating on the inside. Each watch is water resistant to 330 feet (1oo meters). The watches are further available with a leather aviator style strap of an attractive metal bracelet that is about more per a watch.
The watch has a world timer complication which is a city ring that is operated with the crown at 10 o'clock. You then use the GMT hand (which is well designed by the way) to read the time in that other timezone. The ETA 2893-2 movement makes it easy to set the GMT hand as it can be adjusted in perfect one hour increments. Ernst Benz is further quick to point out that using the special indicators on the rotating inner ring, one can see take into consideration daylight savings time when reading the time in a given city. Since Anthony has been wearing his ChronoFlite World Timer watch throughout the show, he most likely enjoys it. A good sign from a well-regarded food personality. Then again, he is the guy that will eat just about anything. Food for thought.

He has a black dialed Ernst Benz ChronoFlite Word Timer watch on the steel bracelet. Ernst Benz watches on a metal bracelet are the most rare it seems. The ChronoFlite World Timer is 47mm wide in steel and has a Swiss automatic mechanical GMT movement - likely an ETA 2893-2. The watch also comes with a white dial and a legion of leather strap options. I think it looks pretty handsome with the bracelet. Plus, Tony likes it that way.
